Collin Morikawa getting back into the swing of things

Collin Morikawa is back to his winning ways after struggling with his game over the past several months.

Morikawa became a fan favorite when he unexpectedly won the PGA Championship in 2020. According to the PGA Tour, Morikawa hasn’t won a PGA TOUR event since his Open Championship win in 2021.

On October 22, Morikawa ended his 27-month winless streak with a victory at the Zozo Championship in Japan, Golf Digest reports.

In a sweet moment, the 26-year-old celebrated the victory with his wife and caddie Katherine Morikawa (formerly Katherine Zhu). It was their first win together as husband and wife.

Morikawa said in a press conference that the Zozo Championship win meant a lot to him.

“Obviously having this kind of two-year drought, you know, just struggling at times, not really contending, to do what I did through this entire week, Thursday, Friday, and then how I started my round yesterday with a double bogey, that’s the golf I miss playing. To see that and to see it again, it’s very exciting kind of just to close out this year and head into next year,” he said, according to CBS Sports.
